The founder and leader of the International Godsway Church (IGWC), Bishop Daniel Obinim, advised Ghanaians against being jealous of other people’s wealth.

According to him, many rich people in the country have been blessed by God and no matter how much you think about them, they are not going to be poor.

‘Your jealousy will not stop God from blessing these people so you should stop and think about yourself,’ Obinim said during preaching at the Kumasi branch of his church.

In a video, he mentioned Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, Osei Kwame of Despite Group fame, and Zylofon’s Nana Appiah Mensah as some of the divinely blessed people.

Other names he mentioned were: Kwaku Oteng of ‘Angel Cream’ fame, Kwame Kyei of Unity Oil fame, and Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.

For him, since these people have divine blessings, it is better for Ghanaians to be happy for them, like he was when he heard that Nana Appiah Mensah had bought a private jet, instead of thinking negatively for them.

He thus called for support for these wealthy people because their blessings are divine and therefore any allegations levelled against them becomes a burden unto the one who makes such allegations.

Obinim’s advice to Ghanaians may be described as timely as many of the people he listed have come in the need lately for the negative reasons over their wealth.
